Dublin motorist Isaac Butler got badly stung this morning when he parked his car and left a note to inform the clampers the machine was broken. He even left payment of €2.20.
The car was parked on Cumberland Road in Dublin 2, a short distance from Fitzwilliam Square, but upon his return, Isaac found his car was clamped and his note and payment were still on the windscreen.
Isaac contacted the clamping company and he was told that it was general practice for their clampers to de-mobilise any vehicle without a ticket.
Dublin City Council’s policy on pay and display states that, if a machine is out of order, motorists must find another machine within the same zone or ring them on (01) 222 2218.
